In the 2020-2021FY (October to September), Myanmar conveyed goods worth $4.905 billion to China.
Following the ease of COVID-19 restrictions, Myanmar’s border posts (Chinshwehaw, Kyinsankyawt and Kampaiti) were back to business. Additionally, Yuan-Kyat direct payment in the border trade was also allowed. Afterwards, the authorities are prioritizing the Sino-Myanmar border to return to normalcy, export promotion to China and increasing the income of the Myanmar citizens. – TWA/GNLM
